God Is Love, Love Is God.... LOVE IS LOVE!
This is how it begins son @stephonmarbury_3 Jumping and dunking on all heights of rims. By the time you turn 18 a 12 foot rim will be easy. Keep doing your stairs, push ups, ball handling and sit-ups. It's all paying off as I can see. The content will live here forever so it won't be a surprise. #youtheone #starbury Your signature shoe is coming out crazy!!! #8footgoal
Team work makes the dream work! Seri Mutiara Champions Cup 2017 CHAMPS. I've never played this early in the year as a pro. First time for everything and this will for sure get me ready for the season. My coach played me 32 min a night out of 40 😧but it was all worth it. Forced my body to respond to the challenge and it did. #lastseasonasapro #starbury #beijing #loveislove #malaysia
Write your own history! Never let circumstances control what Gods plan is for you. My goal is to finish strong with a team that can use some veteran leadership. I've been through a lot of situations in the game of basketball. I know I can help the younger generation like my vets (Terry Porter, Mike Williams, Doug West, Stanley Roberts and Googs) helped me. My #nba career was very Rocky but leveled out when I went to Boston believe it or not. Yes in that short time I grew faster than people could imagine through being in a winning atmosphere. Boston helped me win Championships in China. Walking into the Boston Garden seeing all of those banners made my thirst for victory a destination in winning. You never know where God will place you and when I was placed in China the process began. My story is uniquely complicated if that makes sense. I know there are questions and speculations about me playing in the NBA again. People will face a fact that I'm not the typical 40 year old basketball player because I took care of my body in a way that will allow me to do what my heart and mind desires. The best thing about the CBA is that the season ends early enough for me to play for a team in the @nba and then the @thebig3 possibly. I owe it to the people in #america who watched me play as a kid in the streets of #coneyisland This story is our story. I wanted to retire a Beijing Duck but God opened another door when this didn't happen. It was the perfect ending in my mind but what we think isn't always what will happen as God had a better thought for me to think. I'm gonna give the game all of what it's given me and that's my love and passion for something I've been doing since 2 years old. The story will continue and it will end with the world watching another baller ending a legacy for all to see. @stephonmarbury_3 I love you son I'm doing what you asked. I'm gonna dance one more time on the master stage the NBA! #starburymovement #starbury
I'm making a #nba come back for the fans who want to see me play my last year as a pro. After hearing so many people say come back I finally prayed about it and gave it major thought. I thought the perfect ending would of been retiring with the Beijing Ducks but it's clear the GM had other thoughts which is fine. My love for the ducks will always be A1 from day 1. I still have a lot of go in me as a player and at 40 being able to play at a high level is a gift. Being able to stay mentally focused and physically fit takes a different type of discipline. I'm motivated to make this the best year of my career as I end a 21 year long journey in the game I love. It's been a blessing to play 13 years in the @nba and this year 9 years in the @cbachina China has groomed my game and my style of play. China made me sharp and consistent. We practice Monday-Wed from 9-11:45 and 3-5:45. Thursday one practice 9-11:45 and Friday-Sat same schedule as M-W. I thought I would die at first coming from the NBA where you can't practice that long before the season starts. Oh and we do that for over 40 days. This way of training can either break you or make you. I'd like to look at it as it made me. So I'm ready and prepared to take on a challenge I once faced but with chips under my belt along with all that has come with winning chips in China. Statues, museum, green card, Honorary citizen, ambassador for the environmental protection bureau, key to the city, only 30 people ever to receive the key to the city of Beijing and MY PEACE something no one can ever take. So with all of these things I feel complete and ready to turn towards the last page of my basketball dairy that I've been writing since 95 when I left Lincoln High. I thank all of the positive energy from all those who showed it throughout my time away from the NBA. Thank you for always keeping it 100. @stephonmarbury_3 @espn @marcjspears @nytimes @nypost @nydailynews @newsday @slamonline #starburymovement #starbuy #loveislove
This never gets old. He's learning how to dunk but most importantly his hands are getting used to grabbing the (7 foot) rim from banging it. When I was younger I practiced on the back of my door with a hanger in a hoop shape. We used to cut shoe laces up and tape it around the hanger to make a net. We used a tennis ball, handball or a sock to play after we hung the hanger up on the back of the door. We've evolved to the Gorilla 🦍 hoop. God is great! #grateful #starbury @stephonmarbury_3
It takes a lot to be happy in this life. True happiness is irreplaceable despite the challenges you may face in the life. The ups and downs in life will mold you into who you will become on this earth for a life time. The spirit will stay vibrant and radiant forever when living with this peace in your life. #starbury #Love is Love!
This kid is from Beijing. He didn't have a question yesterday at the Q&A event but he shared his moment as a high school student watching us when the first ever championship in the capital of China. He couldn't hold back the happiness of that time. He started to cry because of the emotions felt from 2012. So amazing in what Basketball can do and will do. The ball is the Globe and the connection is real. This message was syndicated to all those who attended and watched online.
